Potential redundancies planned at Robertson Group

Robertson Group has announced it could have to make redundancies across the business as it prepares to undertake a review into its operating structure.

The construction, infrastructure and support services firm was already in the process of cost reductions before the restrictions of lockdown shut down most of the sector.

It is not yet known how many of its staff would be impacted

A spokesperson for Robertson Group told Scottish Construction Now: “Robertson has announced that there will be a review carried out which will potentially lead to redundancies from across the business. Prior to the emergency measures that were introduced in relation to COVID-19, the business was undertaking a cost reduction review due to a number of our major projects coming to an end.

“As a business, we rely on income being generated from being able to work on site. The emergency measures in relation to COVID-19 restricted our income over the last three months and like many others in the construction sector, we have had to implement this difficult decision in order that we can ensure that we maintain a sustainable environment for our business.

“Throughout this process we will continue to fully support all of our employees, including additional support for those whose roles are directly impacted.”
